How Will You Test Aspects of Your Health Care Quality Report?

Given all the time, money, and effort you are investing in developing and distributing a quality report, you want to be sure that your report is as effective as possible. In other words, you want every aspect of the report to work as well as it can for your audience.

The best way to do this is to test each aspect of your report and your dissemination strategy with your audience and other stakeholders during the developmental phase of the project. This testing is especially important when you are introducing information that is new and complex.

This kind of testing is distinct from evaluating your report and your dissemination strategy after it has been carried out. To learn more about that aspect of a project, go to Assess Your Reporting Project.
